Once I get the truck and can take some real pictures I'll post a post-build thread with all the specs and details.

The project has been a challenge. I haven't driven it yet and it's still at SHP for a few more days.

I saw white D90 yesterday morning on 513 in High Bridge NJ with the top down - looked cold. I was in the wife's LR4 and waved. Anyone here?

Red hub flange bolts are done so the squaddies know to stay away from them.

White diffs are for convoy lighting. Both are pretty standard MOD features.

Spotted a big G4 sticker on an orange 110 headed east on Route 7 outside Leesburg Virginia around 9:30am today. No film in the phone so no photographs unfortunately.
